d e t a i l s Due to unpredictable weather over the winter, dog training at the Meadow Ranch will be switching to weekly drop-in classes instead of our typical 6 week sessions. We will try to keep drop-in classes as consistent as possible, but class days and times are subject to vary each week. Fee will be $25 per dog/handler team for each class attended, and must be paid before class begins (if sending Zelle payment to themeadowranch@gmail.com payment must be made before your arrival to class, cash or check accepted at class). ALL classes will be held outdoors. c l a s s u p d a t e s All communication for drop-ins will be through the Meadow Ranch Facebook and Instagram page. New weekly drop-in days + times will be posted there (typically on Sundays). **Please check for changes or cancellations before driving to class**

l e t u s k n o w y o u ' r e c o m i n g ! SPOTS ARE LIMITED. If you know in advance you'll be attending a drop-in class, please text 630.639.9336 or email themeadowranch@gmail.com with your name, dog's name, and the class you'd like to come to. For those who need to decide last minute, you're still welcome to come as long as there is space in the class! And if you reserve a spot for class and your plans change so you can no longer make it, please let me know so I can open the spot for another student.
